Our Story:

The journey of BackpackerU began when educators at Summit Global Education envisioned a platform that could bridge the gap between the academic realm and the vast global education resources available. The idea was to create a centralized hub where academic minds could converge, share, and evolve through access to a wealth of educational materials. Over time, this vision matured into what is now BackpackerU – a robust platform fostering academic collaboration and enriching the realm of study abroad programs.
Our Philosophy: At the core of BackpackerU lies the belief in collaborative learning and the boundless potential of global education. We are dedicated to creating a platform where academic professionals can not only access a vast array of resources but also engage in meaningful discussions and share insights. We believe that by fostering a community of curious minds, we can collectively contribute to the evolution of global education, making it more accessible, engaging, and enriching.
